    Hello, first time poster here.

    In the early months of this year, my apartment was broken into in SAINT JOSEPH, MISSOURI. Among the missing guitars was a seafoam green 1983 Giuld Pilot bass. I purchased it over almost three years ago on ebay.

    While I no longer have serial number, it has some distinguishing features:
    -There is a significant chip in the paint on the tip of the horn (maybe almost dime-sized).
    -There is a place where the paint is brighter below the knobs where I assume a sticker prevented sun-fade.
    -I personally put a small sticker from a motorcycle museum on it, as well as a large one from Chicago's House of Blues.
    -Lastly, the back of the headstock had written on it in sharpie the uncensored version of the following: the only worthwhile thing you will ever f*** is yourself.

    Obviously, the stickers and marker could easily be removed and it's a long-shot, but I thought maybe the kinda odd color and description would help if anyone ever sees my Thumper again.

    Thank you.

    Good luck, and welcome to Talkbass. I'm sorry it was such a sorry turn of events which brought you here, though.

    Once again, good luck!
